I know I should have typed this "in the moment," but I was too excited at the time and friends were over, so I didn't want to sit in front of the computer.
Last week in Hwa Rang Do class, I got completely devastated in the sparring match I was in. I mean so beaten it was embarassing.
Since then, I have been fighting in my mind, over and over, trying to train myself again. "When he kicks at you, smack the foot away, step in and punch him in the chest. When he kicks at you, smack the foot away, step in and punch him in the chest. When he...."
It worked! On Monday night I went back to class and sparred 3 different people and beat all three of them! I blocked most of their attacks and was able to land my own. I cannot tell you how happy I am to know that there is hope for me, I was really disappointed in myself before.
Tonight, we have class again, my last real chance to practice before the tournament on Sunday. Wish me luck!
